VR: The top trend in Architecture, Design and Real Estate Development


Do you remember those vintage sci-fi shows where characters transported to different planets through devices or beams from their motherships? Did you ever wish that kind of technology would exist at some point? To be able to teletransport into a different space in a blink of an eye? Well, in case you haven't noticed, that tech is already here! At least in the visual aspect.This is the soul of VR: To swap worlds through a headset and when it comes to architecture, design and real estate development, it really has been a game changer. Why? Because for the first time in decades, professionals of the area can show their clients how they pictured their projects before they were made.

No more scale models, no more explaining through simple building plans. Just showing through a headset is a powerful thing. When we perceive the space around us through our senses, then we get to understand it. This is the reason VR became such a trendy tool for the architectural business. Architectural design has always been a discipline filled with challenges while presenting one´s vision. VR solved all that. More and more architecture firms around the world are adding 3D and VR development to their standard process. They discovered the more potential buyers tested their projects through this tech, the more deals they closed.

At the present time, VR have 2 main applications. These depend on whatever need a certain firm wants to address:

1.- Representing unbuilt architecture in fully immersive digital tours so designers can lead their clients into experiencing the halls, corridors, rooms and how the final project will look and feel when its finished.

2.- Capturing real structures, buildings and places so that the users can experience them virtually. This comes extremely handy while presenting a certain facility at conventions or generating dynamic reports of how it works at real time.

For the untrained eye, VR tours can look and feel like real life meaning that lighting, shadowing, dimensioning and spacing are all elements taken under consideration in order to cause real emotions in the user. The craziest thing about this tech is that it's still on development. As years keep passing by, the programs used to generate the digital renders will keep getting sharper and more complex, meaning that even when we got to the point where VR tours seem to be a concept brought from sci-fi, we haven't seen anything yet.

As a team of specialists in 3D and VR experiences, 3D World Renderings is looking forward to keep updating and promoting this deal closer tool for every architect, designer and Real Estate developer who wants to stay above its competitors and to deliver a mesmerizing service to its audience.
